A combination of easy, safe and supported cycling on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail makes this the perfect getaway. This self guided package includes accommodation for 2 nights, luggage moves, food & wine tastings and local experiences in the increasingly popular gourmet hub of north east Victoria.
Ride the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Beechworth to Bright over 2 days (see more about beautiful Beechworth here), cycling a total distance of 72kms. Don’t be daunted by the cycling distance. The vast majority of the trail from Beechworth is flat or downhill and with numerous food and wine stops. Just about anyone can complete the riding comfortably. In fact, we are yet to have a ‘sag wagon’ (support bus) pick up, but that’s always an option for you. Your detailed guide directs you to visit the best cellar doors in the region, and Gourmet Traveller agrees (see our blog post Australia’s best cellar doors).
This is a self guided cycling tour, which means you are free to cycle at your own pace, stop where and when you want, linger for an extra tasting at a cellar door. Feel free to stop to take photos where and when you like the beautiful Alpine Valley. We do all the work for you, including all accommodation and meal bookings, luggage transfers and bikes if needed. We will even pick up all that food and wine you can’t resist buying along the way.
